Dexter Kozen showed this to us just before one of our Halloween gigs. Luckily, Anna was still in the band and could sight read the whole thing. This is an orchestrated version with strings and stuff.
Yes, I do own a violin and cello. No, I don't own kettle drums. I've got a banjo, though, and that's almost as bad.

Autumn's turned the leaves to rust The trees have fallen bare Silver clouds enshroud the moon A chill is in the air Shadows of a thousand years Rise again unseen Voices whisper in the trees Tonight is Halloween Fugue On wings of mortals' weary dreams Across the night we'll fly We'll dance among the stars unchained Until the dawn is nigh A year has passed away, my love Since we've each other seen Softly now and take my hand Tonight is Halloween
